Just another article about SlashMySearch


If you go to Google Blog Search and type "SlashMySearch", you will find 30 articles on this topic today. SlashMySearch is a paid to search web site that pay users to search the internet.

I have read 5 of the 30 articles, all of them only tell you that "SlashMySearch" is about "paid to search". If you think SlashMySearch invents the idea of "paid to search", think again! In 2005, there is a company called, "Netbux", that pays members to search on the Internet. Netbux does not have a sustainable business model, and it is out of business in a short time. The site no longer exists. If you type http://www.netbux.org on your browser, it will show you an online lottery site.

SlashMySearch is a search engine that "not only offers an improved searching experience for the web with thumbnails and advanced security features, it offers an eBay Typo search that automatically generates common misspellings helping buyers find "hidden treasures" or listings on eBay saving them a lot of money". The web site is created by Michael Gabrill and Tri Do from the Orange County.

Saving money on eBay by finding misspelled items is a proven strategy. You can even find books on this topic. SlashMySearch is trying to sell this service using mulitple level marketing. MLM will help build up traffic in a short time, but if SlashMySearch wants to be successful, it has to increase its revenue sources. This may not be what SlashMySearch's founders have in mind though, they may be more interested to be a takeover target.

For people who wants to make a few bucks on the web, SlashMySearch is not a bad choice, especially since it is paying people after earning $50, not $100.
